OGALLALA, Neb. — Authorities have released the name of a man whose body was recovered from Lake McConaughy (muh-KAH’-nuh-hay) in western Nebraska.
He’s been identified as a police officer, Joseph Teeter, who’d served with the Denver Police Department for 11 years.
His body was recovered Sunday about 2 miles (3 kilometers) west of Van’s Lakeview. The body had been secured by two anglers.
Authorities say Teeter had left a boat to go swimming but was unable to return.
